The 8 immortals symbolize 8 kinds of goodness coming into your life.  The 8 Immortals each guard one of the eight directions, so their presence in the home ensures all round good feng shui. 

A combination of two women and six men, they are higher beings who were summoned from heaven with the intents to help the human race with their endeavours, aiding them in achieving their objectives and providing them with the means to obtain riches, reputation, vigour and wisdom. When the Eight Immortals are displayed in your home, they will create an environment in which health, wealth and joy can be generated.

Each of the Eight Immortals possesses a different object of power which is able to practise mystical magic. Below are the qualities of each Immortal:

First Immortal: “Chung-Li Chuan”, the icon of longevity, is known as the leader of the immortals. This is due to the fact that he is the one who discovered the Elixir of Life and has the capability to cure the ill and bring life back to the dead. His special tool is a magical fan, and occasionally a peach.

Second Immortal: “Chang Kuo-Lao”, the symbol of wisdom, is an old man with the power to create a child for couples who have been unsuccessfully trying. He holds a bamboo tube, and is seen upon a mule which can take him as far as a thousand miles in a single day.
